Trivia

In the mid-1990s, the series filmed occasional episodes in the United States. The popularity of these outings led to an American version of the series being launched in 1998. The final season of the British program was in fact filmed on the set of the American version. By that time, aside from the host the majority of the performers were American (including the musician), with only the occasional British performer guest-starring, whereas initially it had been very much the other way around.

This made me pee my pants.
29 July 2003 | by chthon2See all my reviews

That's right, I said it. I normally wouldn't be this honest, but this is the internet, so no one knows who I am anyway. Mike McShane said something about a German U-boat once, and I was already laughing so hard, that did it. I couldn't hold it in anymore. Luckily, I was watching it alone in my room at the time, so no one saw (this was when I was still in high school and in my parents house). I don't see how you couldn't laugh at this show. To do improv is a truly hard thing, but these people pull it off. One of the greatest shows EVER.
